    Unless my arithmetic is very bad, this means its about five weeks since India played Sri Lanka for the first time ever in this test match.

    I am really worried now. I will surely die in the next 5-6 weeks

    Kidding

    It really is surprising that we have played just 29 Tests over the last 27 years against our Southern neighbours and were playing three Tests every year against our Western neighbours ! How come ?

But from recent performances, it seems he's struggling in ODIs too.
    Interesting. Hope to see him back in tests soon, would be disappointing if that injury restricts him to just ODIs & T20s.

    Will be a very close series, depending on how well India play Mendis.

    Won't watch much of this series. India-Sri Lanka matches seem quite boring to me most of the times.

    Do not agree with the selection of Sreesanth - he has done nothing to deserve it - he should be ripping teams apart in the Plate League and as long as he is not doing that, he cannot be seen as a long term Test option - heck, he did not even perform well for Warwickshire. He has been picked purely on the Irani Trophy performance (one innings!) where Munaf took more wickets than him, and yet, Munaf gets dropped - absolute madness. Even if you can justify Munaf getting dropped on the basis of a lack of Test wickets, Sreesanth can surely not be rationally justified as a replacement. I do not doubt his ability to take a crucial five wicket haul, but while we are looking at long term options, we cannot consider someone who cannot perform consistently at First Class level, and never has.

    Other than that, it looks a strong squad and I do hope that Yuvraj can show himself a good batsman and that Ishant Sharma can regain his form in Test cricket.

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Why do they select 15 men squads for a home series? Is it mandatory? Atleast 3-4 among those are going to simply waste time sitting in the dressing room in the middle of the domestic season.

    Probably Just making sure every zone gets at least one of their player in the squad

    Practice game washed away. Why do they want to play cricket where it rains? IIRC, Northern India is much drier than Mumbai in this time of the year.

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
